Coron Culion Overnight Pass Lusong Tour

DSC09469 DSC09528

Here’s a new overnight trip: how about staying overnight at Culion Town?

This trip would add a historical trip to Culion – a former leper colony town. This combines with the best of Coron Island spots and best of sandy beach island, and best of snorkeling spots.

Since the overnight is in a town, this would be a “own cost” or “not included” item in my itinerary list. Anyway, booking an accommodation here is easy.

Here’s the route:

Coron North Cay Overnight Calauit Black 2N Tour

Here’s another variation of an overnight at North Cay Island, this time we add Calauit Safari. Here’s the route:

CNCOCBL2N Map

This is similar to Coron North Cay Overnight All-In Tour, but Calauit Safari is added.

Best month to do this: between October to May.

I believe this would still be a value-for-money itinerary, considering you are covering a large area in 2 days and 1 night only.

Coron North Cay Island Overnight All-In Tour

CNCOAT Map

Here’s one customized itinerary I would really recommend. Words are not enough to describe this paradise.

  • Sleep at North Cay Island.
  • Visit Black Island.  See the huge cave.
  • Snorkel at one of the best snorkeling site in the country – Lusong Island.
  • And of course, visit Kayangan Lake and Atuayan Beach of Coron Island.

This is indeed a “Best of both paradise”!

Best time to visit: October to May.

If you have Google-searched enough, you might still see my old blog about my trip in Gutob Bay (This is where North Cay Island is located).

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. How do I join a Joining Group? Ans.: There must be an existing Joining Group first before you can join a Joining Group. You may see it here in the JG Calendar. If there is one, you should mention it as a comment in the Reservation Form.
  2. If there is no existing Joining Group, what do I do? Ans.: You have 2 options. 1) You may opt not to proceed with the inquiry since there is no group to join. 2) You may opt to start or create a Joining Group. Just fill up the form and make a reservation deposit. Your tour will be posted in the JG Calendar. When someone joins, you will be notified.
  3. Can I customize my tour itinerary? Ans.: Yes, you may! The posted itineraries here are some of my recommendations based on my experience. But you may change it the way you like it. Just mention it in the comment in the form.
  4. Are the prices in your Sample Itineraries are in Peso Per Group? Ans.: No, it’s in Peso Per Person.
  5. Are the entrance fees of the spots not mentioned in your Sample Itineraries included in the tour cost? Ans.: If the spot you want to visit is not on my Sample Itinerary, then the cost of that entrance fee is not included. You may visit those spots not listed, but you just have to pay the entrance fee directly to the spot.
  6. Are the prices in your Sample Itineraries fixed and would not change? Ans.: The prices there are not fixed, and it may change. This would really depend on the local tourism conditions in Coron. Example: Entrance fees change without prior notice. Like CYC Island, this used to be free; but now there is an entrance fee of P100.
  7. Are your prices the cheapest in Coron? Ans.: My prices here are not the cheapest. But I can assure you that my tours are value-for-your-money. Being the cheapest price would mean that 1) there are many joiners in your tour group, 2) some spots would have to removed and be limited, and 3) some services would have to be simplified.
  8. What then would be your advantage over other tour agencies in Coron? Ans.: I would say that I have the expertise when it comes to exploring/touring not only Coron, but also the whole Calamian Group of Islands. I am known for Island Overnight trips. Being in this activity since 2008, I would know the most optimized tour. Most likely I would be referred to you by someone who availed my tour offer before. Their Testimonies can also be seen here if you wish to read it.
  9. (Note: Other questions would just be added here as needed.)

Coron Banana Overnight All-In Tour

This itinerary is my most recommended. If you want to experience the best of Coron, one must spend overnight in an island. The accommodation in the island is basic but decent. Some rooms have private toilet and bath, and most rooms are for shared toilet and bath. Nevertheless, this would still be my most recommended itinerary in Coron. I brought my officemates here and let them experience island overnight, and until now they can’t forget the experience.

This is actually a combination of a Coron Island Loop and Malcapuya Banana Loop tour having an accommodation in the island. However, instead of having Malcapuya Island as the default spot, for this island overnight, the default spot is Banana Island.

Just to compare it with the Day Trip tours:

  • Coron 950 All-In Tour = P950/Person
  • Malcapuya 1200 All-In Tour = P1200/Person
  • However, the 2 Day Tours cannot fetch you from Banana Island Overnight since Coron 950 will not reach Banana Island. Thus, you need a Coron Malcapuya Tour in order to be fetched from Banana Island…
  • Coron 950 (using Coron Malcapuya 1800 price) + Malcapuya 1200 Day Tours = P3000/Person
  • Banana Island Overnight Fee = P1000/Person
  • Cooking & Catering Service Fee for dinner & breakfast = P1000-3000/Group
  • ALL-IN Coron Banana Overnight Tour = Coron 950 + Malcapuya 1200 + Banana Island Overnight + Overnight Cooking & Catering Service + Free Brand New Snorkel Mask = P3800/Person

Coron 950 Loop

Malcapuya 1000 Loop

Banana Island is the island in front of Malcapuya Island (at your 5 O’clock)

And just like with day trip itineraries, you may add nearby spots. You just have to pay the entrance fee directly on the spot.
